Cast yer anchor at the Hafen Chrstmas market for some ho, ho, ho and a bottle of Glühwein. Ahoy!
The Christmas tree is a festive tradition around the world. But how did it start? It may have its origins in Germany.
German Christmas may be full of wonderful things, but it doesn’t have any crackers.
The Krampus is a terrifying creature that accompanies St. Nikolaus as he makes his gift-giving rounds in some parts of Germany – thankfully not in the Rhineland.
It’s not German, and it’s not even a real pickle, but we’re adopting the German pickle Christmas tree decoration regardless.
Today is traditionally the day when St. Nikolaus brings gifts to good boys and girls in most German speaking countries – bad kids get sticks.
You expect to put on a little weight at Christmas. But here in Germany you’ll start piling on the pounds right from the start of the month, and this plate of delicious badness is the reason why.
